Press Release

Washington – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01)—Co-Chair of the Congressional Joint Strike Fighter Caucus—released the following statement:

“I’m looking forward to discussing the importance of the F-35 and the steps Lockheed Martin has already taken to drive down program costs with President-Elect Trump and his National Security team. As the nation’s premier fifth-generation fighter, the F-35 represents the very best of American ingenuity and capability. Given its pure superiority over all foreign aircraft, it will serve as a military deterrent for decades to come.  Despite growing pains, the program has cut costs significantly to date and is on course to continue achieving savings.  I’m confident in the future of the program.”
